RELIGION 362 1267 1 Theories of Religion
Description
This course is an in-depth survey of the major theories of religion as they are portrayed through some of their influential interpreters in the post-Enlightenment West. Selective readings from classical and contemporary thinkers will be utilized to shed critical light on the extant methodological and theoretical approaches in the study of religion. The course is not a study in comparative religion or the history of religions, but of selected anthropological, psychological, sociological, philosophical, and theological approaches in the hermeneutics of religion.
